Barça and Villarreal are best in 2008


Barcelona and Villarreal are the two teams in the Spanish League to have gained most points in 2008. Both have picked up 74 in 37 games.

In football the important figures are for the period from September to June following the season, but when looking back over 2008 it’s significant that Barça has been, along with Villarreal, the best team over the course of the year.

First half not so good

Wonderful end
